There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you confuse Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne and find yourself at the mercy of an actor whose voice can make even the strongest man whimper in terror. This sounds like a joke, but it actually happened on live television, and since this is the internet, it will never go away and the news anchor who made the tragic error will never live it down.
So it has come to this: 2015 will see not only the 30th anniversary of 'Back to the Future,' but a stage musical adaptation that will premiere in London's West End with an eye towards a Broadway debut in 2016. This is no cheap knock-off either. This version of the enormously popular film has several of the original's key players heavily involved in the production.
We don't know about you, but after yesterday's new 'Captain America 2' Super Bowl trailer, this sequel catapulted to the top of our most anticipated films of 2014 list. Like 'Thor 2' and 'Iron Man 3,' the latest adventure of Marvel's patriotic hero looks to take the groundwork established by previous films and take everything to a truly exciting and fresh place.
A new batch of images from the film have made their way online, showcasing the film's large cast of heroes and villains.
Before they shot last year's sleeper success 'Prisoners,' actor Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve collaborated on 'Enemy,' which found some love on the festival circuit. Now, four months after their second film together opened, the full 'Enemy' trailer is here to point to a theatrical release.
Yep, it's official: we're getting a 'Ghostbusters' LEGO set.
Originally submitted last year as part of LEGO's Cuusoo competition (where fans design their own sets in hopes of them actually getting mass produced), the "Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary" set will include the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle and four figures representing Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddmore. And yeah, this is the kind of thing that makes us want to be kids again so we can play it with guilt-free.
No popular brand has been explored, examined, reinterpreted and reinvented as much as 'Star Wars,' and with the impending release of 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' we can fully expect fandom to enter a state usually reserved for small children who have stumbled across a cache of sugar. Every so often, we can cut through all of the lousy fan art, cosplay and fan fiction and stumble across something that is legitimately cool.
Case in point: this line of custom action figures, which takes the iconography of 'Star Wars' and puts it in American's old West.
Sometimes, 'SNL' is at its absolute best when it decides to go fully and truly off the rails. When the show does abandon reality, it often does so in the final sketch of the night, where things are allowed to get crazier and funkier since more easily unsettled audiences tend to be asleep. Of course, this is just a long-winded way of saying that no sketch has dominated the final segments in recent years quite like the "former porn stars," which pushes the weirdness to truly strange and amazing levels.
The 'Oculus' trailer isn't shy about who's behind the film's production. Producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Pictures have had tremendous success with the horror genre, crafting films like 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Insidious,' 'Sinister' and 'The Purge.' The company's latest film is 'Oculus,' which bears many of the same traits as other Blumhouse films. Domestic setting invaded by supernatural horror? Check. A decent cast of actors lending credibility to what should be genre absurdity? Check. A trailer that relies on surreal imagery and the innocent-yet-creepy voice of a child to sell the chills? Check!
After a tortured development, it looks like the much-talked-about 'Fantastic Four' reboot is finally starting to gain some real traction. The current word is that Simon Kinberg's rewrite of the script is finally finished and going out to actors, who will soon audition in various combinations to see who clicks. Longtime fans of Marvel's first family of superheroes may want to sit down before they see who is being eyed for Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch...
Now that Disney has gobbled up everything that's important to you and your childhood, they're going to start doing what any corporation worth its salt would do: start squeezing every single possible dollar out of your bank account until your wallet cries uncle. The first step in their recent wave of corporate synergy was giving the 'Star Wars' comic license back to Marvel. Step two is an even bigger deal: giving Pixar a 'Star Wars' movie to make.
With 'Man of Steel 2'/'Batman vs. Superman'/'Justice League 1.0' delayed until 2016, we have an additional 12 months to sort through the rumor mill and try to piece together what the heck is going on in this increasingly bizarre production. The latest tidbit should prove interesting to hardcore DC superhero fans and possibly a little baffling to the comic book laymen. It seems that the 'Arrow' TV show may take place in the same universe as 'Man of Steel' since series star Stephen Amell says he's discussed the future 'Justice League' movie with Warner Bros.
